Remember That Song – 6/20/18

Can you name the artist and song:

But don’t forget it’s me who put you where you are now,
And I can put you back there too


Last Song: “Parents Just Don’t Understand” by DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince from He’s the DJ, I’m the Rapper (1988)

Great job Jim (@JimVilk), Sheila (@Fl_flipflopgirl), and Madison’s Dad (@2010Jeffreydr)!!!

There was nothing I could do, I tried to relax
I got dressed up in those ancient artifacts
And when I walked into school, it was just as I thought
The kids were cracking up laughing at the clothes Mom bought

Quote of the Day: Dragon’s Lair

Dragon’s Lair: The fantasy adventure where you become a valiant knight, on a quest to rescue the fair princess from the clutches of an evil dragon. You control the actions of a daring adventurer, finding his way through the castle of a dark wizard, who has enchanted it with treacherous monsters and obstacles. In the mysterious caverns below the castle, your odyssey continues against the awesome forces that oppose your efforts to reach the Dragon’s Lair. Lead on, adventurer. Your quest awaits!

The Dragon’s Lair arcade game was released on this day 35 years ago (June 19, 1983). After this date, you could find me glued to this game in the arcade at Cranston Bowl, every Saturday morning after our bowling matches. It didn’t matter that it cost a whopping 50 cents a game.

Last Song: “Coming Up” by Paul McCartney from the album McCartney II (1980)

You want some peace and understanding
So everybody can be free
I know that we can get together
We can make it, stick with me
